Duty Free Lunch Volunteers Needed!
Duty Free Lunch is the title given to the Fridays when teachers are provided the opportunity to eat their lunches away from the cafeteria. Most days, teachers are required to eat lunch with their students and monitor the lunch room during this time. Twice a month, they are given the opportunity to eat lunch in their classrooms and take a short break away from their students.
As a Duty Free Lunch volunteer, you will monitor the students in the cafeteria to be sure they are eating within their allotted lunch time and that they clean up their tables when they are finished. You are not required to serve food. You are not required to clean the floor or tables. If you would like to wipe down tables and/or sweep under them, you are more than welcome to do so, but you are not required to do so.
This is great way for you to see your student while he or she is at school and possibly meet some of his/her friends. It is also a wonderful way to show your support for our teachers.
Duty Free Lunch is scheduled twice a month on Fridays. Volunteers are needed between the hours of 11a – 1:30p and should sit at the round table that is center most in the cafeteria. This allows for the best view of the entire lunch room. It is recommended that volunteers be available for the entire 2.5 hours, however it is not necessary, and we we appreciate any amount of time that you are able to commit to. The only dates that are currently confirmed are Friday, August 26 and Friday, September 16. necessary.
We would like to have at least 4 volunteers scheduled for each Duty Free Lunch, as it’s the ideal number for monitoring the lunch room. We CANNOT offer a Duty Free Lunch with less than 2 volunteers. You can volunteer a little or as often as your schedule allows.
If you are interested in volunteering to cover Duty Free Lunch, or if you have any questions about it, please contact at Stacee Michaud.
PLEASE NOTE: If your student is returning to Simpson (rising 7th or 8th Grader) AND you received the Eagle Eye during the 2015-2016 school year you DO NOT need to sign up again, we’ve got you covered.
